Epic Games and Digital Extremes Re-Kindle Era-Defining Partnership With Free, Limited-Time Bundle That Brings the Brutal Action of Three Unreal Tournament Weapons to Warframe
LOS ANGELES, CA – December 11, 2020 – Working together again for the first time in 16 years since the co-creation of Unreal series, Canadian developer and publisher Digital Extremes and Epic Games exclusively revealed at The Game Awards the iconic crossover Unreal Tournament Weapon Bundle for Warframe®. Available for a limited time for free in an unprecedented package in the Epic Games Store, this first-of-its-kind bundle introduces three Unreal Tournament player-favorite weapons to Warframe.
From Thursday, December 10, to Thursday, December 24 at 11:59 pm ET, PC players can download the Unreal Tournament Flak Cannon, Rocket Launcher and Shock Rifle, their respective Warframe skins and more, and instantly engage in white-knuckle crossover carnage wielding Unreal Tournament weapons in Warframe.
Digital Extremes’ and Epic Games’ first official collaboration in nearly two decades brings an evolved Warframe, with its new graphics rendering engine, dynamic real-time lighting, and smaller footprint, to a whole new generation of PC players, adding Warframe to Epic’s blockbuster lineup of free-to-play titles such as Fortnite and Rocket League, among others.
“More than 20 years ago, the teams at Digital Extremes and Epic were working on the original Unreal Tournament,” said Epic Games CEO, Tim Sweeney. ”It’s awesome to see how much success Digital Extremes has had with Warframe, and we’re excited to be bringing it to the Epic Games Store, along with such a cool nod to that history.”
“When we started working with Epic Games on Solar Winds and Epic Pinball, we had no clue they would lead to the collaborative decade of work that would blossom into the Epic’s Unreal franchise. With Unreal, we all helped create a great gaming experience together,” said James Schmalz, founder and CEO of Digital Extremes. “Fast forward nearly two decades to our current success, Warframe, and it’s humbling to see a couple of those early weapons we created introduced into our universe. To see some of that collaboration happening again today is incredibly exciting.”
